Kinda dumb, but they seem the same often. I lean to 10/13 but most like 10/12 better. I want to try comparing again.

What do the 60s connoisseurs say?

12... by a longshot

10/12/68 stacks up to and can hold it's own versus ANY show from ANY era, period.

I pick 12, but they are very similar. StSt is a bit more on target, IMHO, and how can you not love Bob's line ("funniest thing I ever heard")? Reading the reviews, some think the 11 is better on the 13th, but I am not sure I buy it. The 13th has a few more tech-no limitations, though Miller, as usual, tried his best. Note the difference in the first two minutes of the DS and the StSt. Listening to those two songs, side by side, I have to go with the 12th, but accept it's close...

I agree about the 12th, but no one ever talks about the 11th...

due to the pre-feedback Jam on the 12th, that wins top spot for me, but otherwise, both are great

my vote is with the 12th, but they both have one major drawback: no pigpen.

they are close but the 12th wins by a hair...though due to the pigpen factor I don't listen to either of them as much as I should...

I pick 10/12/68 on the strength of the Dark Star and The Eleven. The next night sounds less inspired to me.

These may be the two most identical shows the Dead ever played - in fact for years no one even knew they were different shows!
I'd give 10/12 the nod, if only because the jam at the end is better, and New Potato is sadly sliced on 10/13.

Another vote for the 12th, but re Wm Tell, I think the Eleven on the 13th is intense--that's where I find myself thinking 'OK, glad I picked this night instead of the night before to listen to this time.'
